"Private room in hostel was fine."
In town for Dead concert so especially happy to get a private room for a cheap price. Bed was good. Room a little hot at night. Window didn't open. My room was small. Just double bed and end table. Had to use ironing board as a table. Bathroom next door was fine. Used kitchen and laundry. Breakfast was too much bread/grain for me. Great location. Nice people.

"Place to crash after epic concert"
I had given up hope of paying less than $350 for a hotel near the parks/loop district after a last minute ticket to the Grateful Dead concert on 4th of July weekend, when I found this hostel. Is it 5 star? No. If you need privacy or have a lot of luggage, this is not the place. However, if you just need a place to crash while you're out living it up in Chicago, this is the place for you. Clean, welcoming, perfectly situated and amazingly priced for its location. Oh, and they have late check in until 3am! I would definitely stay here again.

"in loop district and convenient in transportation"
This is a really nice hotel for travel people like me who travel out during the day time. It is in the loop district, close to the beach, the parks, many restaurant, and very convenient in transportion for having many CTA railway stations and bus stops nearby. So frankly speaking, it's also a little noisy at night. There's a kitchen in the apartment although i had not use it. There is also a laundry in the floor and I did not use it either. So I recommend people to book this hotel for long and short stays but please be sure to bring your own tooth brush, towel, slippers, and other daily necessities.

"One of the nicest hostels ever."
This is a perfect example of getting more than you pay for. Accommodations plus the included breakfast were both great for the price of this hotel. Many families stay here. The hostel also organizes events and has volunteers as concierge, which are also both great! Beds very comfortable. Must use key-card to get everywhere, making it much safer. Lockers good size.

"Only for a select few"
First time in a Hostel. I was expecting a lot more. It felt like a college dorm except even less then that. I did not enjoy my stay. i was happy it was not even a full one day. If you are a kid under the age 22 and have a group of friends all sharing a room together, maybe it would be ok. The price was ok, but i rather pay more somewhere else so i can actually have a bed to sleep in. Climbing on a ladder to get to top twin bed, that was uncomfortable. There was much more to my stay that i did not like. But the hostel was just not for me.

No sink in room but bed was really good and that's what a room is all about. Under 50% occupancy in the 4+4 room suite so very little delay sharing only men's toilet and shower. Spare shower and toilet in hall was usually available.

"Ideal location"
We had a nice time. The hotel is very accessible to the main tourist attractions of Chicago and the transport system as well. The continental breakfast is just enough considering that there are many food choices nearby. This is ideal for family and groups, although not suited for those who want privacy and extra comfort. Perfect for a few days of stay.

"Perfect for a quick trip to Chicago"
I usually don't write reviews, but HI deserves one. I went to Chicago for a conference. I was a bit skeptical about staying at a hostel- would it be safe? Would it be a bunch of rowdy kids, etc. Instead, I found a very nice hostel, in a perfect location (right across the street from Millennia park). The staff were super friendly, even maintenance went out of their way to talk to you and make sure you had everything you needed. Also to my surprise, there were a lot of older adults there, and a good amount of the people staying there seemed to be on business trips or attending conferences, so it had quite a mature/professional atmosphere. The safety is great. You need a key to get in the building, in the elevator and into your room. I stayed in a dorm, with 8 beds, and we all shared a bathroom/shower (with extra in the hallway). Each floor had a kitchen/fridge for us to use as well. Everyone I dormed with was nice, didn't need to worry about them being up late or being loud. HI also provides a nice breakfast selection and has a great lounging area. I'll definitely be back in I'm in this area again.

I had a fantastic time staying at HI in Chicago. Very pleased with everything. I thought hostels were for unkempt college kids, but boy, was I wrong. Stayed there for a conference last weekend, and now wish that I had known about these earlier. Very clean, attentive, friendly, helpful, and the like. Highly recommend.

"Ideal for a short stay"
Since I needed a lodging only for a few hours before take-off at ORD, I chose this place. Given the price and hours I spent, it was okay. However, it you look for comfy stay, then I would not recommend this place. This place is hostel for backpackers. Basically, you may have 7 other people in the room with a noisy HVAC. If you don't have a hostel membership, they charge you extra $3.
